a collection of place settings
A Brooklyn-based ceramicist exploring the domestic landscape of the table with a collection of function and playful objects.
Processing Dirt Glazes
My current practice explores the potential of raw earth and the man-made / sedimentary distinctions between place realized in a series of functional dinnerware ceramics. Domestic in scale and purpose, this series explores the tangible geological differences between places – London stacked on top of Mexico City, stacked on top of sand from a beach in Vieques, PR and all this sitting above earth that I collected just down the street in Brooklyn.
Handmade in Brooklyn
Amelia Black Ceramics is a handmade line of ceramic ware. Inspired by an appreciation and want for humble forms, playful minimalism and relaxed functionality. Each piece is hand thrown in my Brooklyn studio using stoneware clay bodies. I am inclined to neutral palette of found earth glaze colors with bold details.
